February OwlCrate Review

Hello, all!

There was a slight delay in shipment for the February "Magic Unleashed" box, but it's finally arrived so let's dive in.

First up we had some bath salts from The Soap Librarian inspired by We Hunt the Flame. I'm not usually a fan of the bath products they include but this one has a lovely hibiscus scent (one of my faves!), and if it didn't have petals mixed in, I'd be very tempted to use it. Are you all fans of things floating in your bath products like petals, etc? It bothers me so much!

Next, we had a Star Daughter inspired hairbrush created by the OwlCrate team. I think the design is pretty and brushes always come in handy, so I'm sure I'll get use out of this.

Then there was this Daughter of Smoke and Bone keychain designed by Lively Ghosts. I've never read that series, but the design is cool.

To be honest, OwlCrate pouches are always hit or miss for me. This Legendborn inspired one was created by By Chenelle isn't my favorite they've ever sent, I just find the design to be a little busy, so I may pass this off.

My favorite item was this metal book tin inspired by A Darker Shade of Magic created by Forensics and Flowers. I love the design and it looks like they'll be creating four different tins based on each London in the series which is cool. This one is obviously for Red London, and I can't wait to see what the others will look like.

The book for the month was The Gilded Ones by Namina Forna. This is a fast-paced and action-packed West African inspired story following Deka and her quest to discover her destiny after finding out she has near-immortal magical powers that could potentially help break her kingdom out of its oppressive patriarchal rule. I've heard it's supposed to be very Mulan-meets-Black Panther and I'm intrigued.

Let me know what you thought of last month's box!
